Tilgner, C; Christopeit, D; Dittrich, K R; Ziegler, P (2008). Pylonix: A Database Module for Collaborative Document Management. In: Twelfth East-European Conference on Advances in Databases and Information (ADBIS), Pori/Finland, 5 September 2008 - 9 September 2008, 58-73.

Abstract

In today’s world, document management plays an increasingly important role. However, there is currently no solution to manage complex documents in an integrated manner. Typically, existing approaches provide only limited document management capabilities and do not offer comprehensive access, manipulation and retrieval functionalities for all document elements. In this paper, we present conceptual and architectural foundations of Pylonix, a database module tailored for integrated collaborative document management. A novel data model capable of representing complex documents including all their elements is outlined. We propose a software architecture which allows the module to be integrated into applications requiring fine-grained document management and offers database and data model independence by using an intermediate language. Finally, we present functionalities, capabilities and advantages of Pylonix in comparison with existing work.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
